Concentrated, sweet cherry flavors have a touch of tannin for pairing with ribs.

A full bodied, fruit-driven wine, this predominately Cabernet Sauvignon is intermingled with Merlot for an immediate consumption experience. It is a food-friendly wine found in fine dining restaurants across the United States. Its nose offers up Bing cherry and plum nuances, with flavors displaying a structured Cabernet Sauvignon backbone with jammy characteristic. The wine team has over 30 years of making this wine and continues to show award-winning consistency with it. Drink it with grilled lamb, gorgonzola cheese or sauteacute;ed duck breasts.

Clean black cherry flavors balance the tight, chalky tannins of this wine; to pair with steak.

Lithe, supple style has a nice core of currant and plum flavor, shaded with a touch of cedar. Drink now.

Sweet and perfumed, with additional aromas of bacon and baking spice. The palate is warm, chunky and jam-packed with plum fruit and tasty spice. The tail end is meaty and toasty, with some chocolate notes adding richness.

Fresh and bright, with black cherry and dusky herb flavors on a supple frame.
